Simon Cowell

BRING ON THE KID

'I'm Proud to Be a Dad'

breaking news

0820_simon_cowell_lauren_silverman_gettySimon Cowell is finally coming to terms with fatherhood ... saying he feels "good" about the fetus growing inside Lauren Silverman ... and adding, "I'm proud to be a dad."

Cowell made the comments to BBC -- the first time he's really addressed the runaway sperm that knocked up the New York socialite.

"Things are changing in my life for the better," Simon said ... adding, "[Silverman] is a very special girl."

The 53-year-old gazillionaire says he's changed his outlook on parenthood in the past few months and insinuated that he wasn't always so keen on the idea ... explaining, "Now I know I feel good about it."

So far, no word on when the baby is due.

"Finally" coming to terms. I thought I read this weeks ago. BTW: Ms. Silverman is a woman not a girl.

Spend money on around the clock Nannie care and boom, you're a Dad. Not a hard as Simon initially thought.

Proud? He is proud? Of what? I'm sure his friend who is married to the woman Simon secretly slept with would call it something else. What an dumb a$$.

Love TMZ    

I really do like Simon and all his talent. I think he makes any show he's a part of "interesting" and entertaining. I really hope this whole new lifestyle works for him. I wish him all the best; but I hope this baby gets his attention, and not about him trying to get attention.

Did they say whether it's a boy or girl? I can see him having a son, but not a daughter for some reason.
